Match Details:

The 3rd place play-off of the U19 Challenger Trophy 2019-20 will be played between India C Under-19s and Nepal A Under-19s at the Gymkhana Grounds in Secunderabad.

The match starts at 9:00 AM local time (IST) (3:30 AM GMT).



The tournament began with the Nepal ‘A‘ Under-19s facing the India C Under-19s in the U19 Challenger Trophy 2019-20 at the Gymkhana Grounds. Interestingly, on the last day of the tournament, both the teams will clash once again. However, this time, it will be known as the 3rd place play-off. Nepal were defeated in all three matches and stood no chance of making it to the final. The India C team suffered defeats in both matches after they beat Nepal A on Monday. Even one win among those two matches could have had India C playing at the RGICS in the Final on Sunday.

Weather Condition/Report:

There is no threat predicted from the rain for the last day of the tournament.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The Gymkhana grounds has been decent in the tournament so far producing chases around 220-230 regularly. Nepal A Under-19s team playing two games here might not have shown the exact way of how the pitch behaved. If the surface remains dry, the first batting side should aim 270+ total.

Average first innings score: N/A

Record of chasing teams: N/A
